Abstract : The objective of this project was to advance the state of the art in materials and processes for the fabrication of bipropellant chemical rocket thrust chambers. The results of the effort included the demonstration of materials and processes that permit thrust chamber operation at 2200 deg C (4000 deg F) for tens of hours, providing a 20-second increase in specific impulse; demonstration of process scaleup, from 5-lb(sub f) (22-N) to 100-lb(sub f) (445-N) chamber size; and development and characterization of the process to permit application of this technology to satellite and/or spacecraft propulsion systems. jg
